Tommy Wiseau attends a screening of “The Disaster Artist” at AFI Fest 2017 on Nov. 12, 2017, in Hollywood. Tommy Wiseau’s cult so-bad-it’s-good movie The Room is the inspiration for Academy Award-nominated film The Disaster Artist, but the enigmatic director wasn’t invited to the ceremony itself. “Oh hi #Oscars,” Wiseau tweeted along with a picture of himself and The Room co-star Greg Sestero wearing tuxes and sunglasses on the Golden Globes red carpet.
